5 Best Evergreen Dads of South Indian CinemaPublished: February 6, 2015
Fathers are the angels on earth and the God’s best gift to children on earth. With the recent release of Ajith Kumar’s Yennai Arindhaal, where he has played an adorable father.
We bring you 5 best onscreen fathers we have seen in the recent times of Tamil cinema.
Ajith Kumar (Yennai Arindhaal)
Much prior to the release, the makers had affirmed rigidly that every girl and boy would yearn for such a father in real life. Gautham Vasudev Menon is always known for his esthetical sense of establishing a wonderful characterization of father-children relationship and this film holds a prominent illustration to it.
Ajith Kumar plays a step-father to a young girl, whom he takes care as his very own daughter in the remembrance of his fiancee (played by Trisha).
Suriya (Vaaranam Aayiram)
This was more emotional indeed! When we were watching Suriya in such a heart-melting role, it was more off happiness in hearts and emotions brimming up as well. T
he actor’s characterization was poignantly carved and some of the scenes were so touching. Much alike the recent release, Gautham Vasudev Menon had poetically sketched the characterization of Krishna.
George Kutty was an impeccable illustration of how a father could do anything for his daughter. He is so illiterate, innocent and never intends to harm anyone. But how far does he go to protect his daughter and family was so beautifully conveyed by Jeethu Joseph.
Well, the remake version in Tamil titled ‘Paapanasam’ with Kamal Haasan reprising the role is on the way, but as we say, the original is always good, Mohanlal as George Kutty retained in our senses even many days after watching the film.
Prakash Raj (Abhiyum Naanum)
Laced with the essence of fun, emotions and a staunch rigidness over not letting his daughter go away from him, Prakash Raj had proved his versatility in this role.
Chiyaan Vikram (Deiva Thirumagal)
Sean Penn’s ‘I am Sam’ was an abrupt translation though some commercial elements were included by AL. Vijay, but Vikram’s performance as an autism affected father turned our eyes in moist.
The film claimed a heart-warming response from family audiences and it was a film that could let daughters connect with their fathers.
